“Great place - rustic cottages with excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2008

Just got back from an excellent vacation in Traverse City. We stayed for a week at the Anchor Inn. It is a great place for families and others to relax and enjoy beautiful Michigan. The cottages are rustic but very well maintained. Would definitely go back if ever visiting Michigan again!

  • Liked — new fresh towels and garbage collection daily included in the weekly rental
  • Disliked — the private beach wasn't the best
  • Stayed August 2008, travelled with family

...and unwind. Is right next to the lake beach. Is cottage vintage and quaint. Only problem...shampoo is not provided....I wish I knew before we got there. The cutlery and the utensils were in okay condition.
